Yes the doctor can refer you to the hospital - sorry but she's talking rubbish. I had exactly the same which was diagnosed as a saliva gland and which kept erupting and was the very painful. Eventually I rubbed salt into it and burst it (sorry to be so graphic) and it has never returned.


Thanks for getting back to me i had an idea she was fobbing me off im going back next week i am worried that i could have sjogrens syndrome so will ask to be sent somewhere
